Fabric Flower Redo

Ok. Ok already. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to make the fabric flower for my fab t-shirt headband. Admittedly, it’s a little different than the flower I link to (don’t shoot me!). Here goes the difference… Instead of folding the t-shirt in half after twisting like the Hannah fabric flower, I fold the t-shirt in half before twisting.

Gotta have:

  • 1” wide x 16” long cut of fabric
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Sweet twisting and rolling skills

Cut your strip of fabric and fold in half lengthwise. Twist as tight or loose as you like. Loose twisting will present a shabbier looking flower than a tighter twist, which will produce a more uniform flower.

Glue intermittently as you roll the fabric, making sure to hide any glue deposits on the underside.

The particular flower in the photo above was twisted tighter than the one in the t-shirt headband flower. No two flowers are the same, but this is the technique I used.

  1. you are totally right about needing to have sweet twisting and roll skills. I always manage to mess up those rolls…even with hot glue!
